Great value though the flavor is lighter than what I expected, it lack the slight bitterness from normal green tea. But consider the price, I would say fair buy. If you looking for some stronger green tea like me, you can try the "Starwest Botanicals, Organic Chunmee Green" also from iherb. Just an extra 2 bucks, taste a bit better.
Not what I expected
Not what I expected
I have been drinking gunpowder tea for a while and thought that buying organic would be a smart thing to do. Except this doesn't taste the same as what I have been drinking. I know there are many different green teas but I didn't know that the gunpowder green tea also can differ from brand to brand. This has a smokey taste which I don't like. Also the colour is not the same; as someone else has already mentioned it is yellow/brown and not as green as what I was used to. It's still quite drinkable. I'll finish this package but won't order this again.
absorbed odor of other herbs?
Posted by americiumdream on Dec 18, 2016
. not a bad tea for the price; this batch seemed to have an herbal odor suggesting it may be stored with other herbs, but it certainly looks and tastes pure. . I like to chew and eat tea combined with mct oil or with some other fatty food like cashews; the fat prevents stomach problems caused by the tannins or other acidic components. . I am paranoid that some herbal suppliers might leach the nutraceuticals from their herbs, (eg, tea has not only caffeine but also valuable antioxidants and theanine) but this brand seems to have at least the caffeine intact. (I can't really feel antioxidants and theanine when I've taken them separately).
Suberb Product !

Strong Bitter Green Tea

Love it! The taste is strong but just the way I like it! I drink this (as well as Yerba Mate) instead of coffee since I gave up the latter years ago. The bulk package is economical and lasts for a long time.
excellent quality and price
